More on Harrington
Matt Millen talked with the NFL about the Dolphins and Joey. You see, Matt thinks he gave permission for Miami to talk with Harrington and "get to know the kid." But, he did not give permission to work out a contract.
The NFL was quick with a comment: the Dolphins and Harrington were within their rights. When a player is given permission to talk with another team, he can negotiate a contract. There is no tampering, and no issues with the salary cap.
Millen still thinks they're wrong, and is thinking about having a lawyer talk with the NFL about it. Need I mention that he and Rick Spielman are great friends?
You see, Millen wants more than the 6th round pick Miami is currently offering. But, Harrington has the upper hand because he won't talk with other teams, and tells them he's going to the Dolphins. And he's owed $4 million in June, so if they don't trade him, he gets rich.
